My father writes in his diary that we inspected the radar, echo sounding device and gyro compass. He "interviewed" the Captain, Capt Javadecker, the preceding day and noted that the Capt wanted to start a sea scout troop in Calcutta. Can you confirm that this vessel was in Melbourne under this Captain please reply Your Stories Your name * E-mail * Post your story * Submit Leave this field blank Share this Page Share this ship with your friends and followers online.
